INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Voyageurs National Park will launch its campsite reservation and fee system next month.

The park on Minnesota's northern border will phase in the system staring April 1. Officials have chosen 34 sites that will be marked with "reservation only" signs for the first year and will expand the program for 2015.

Park officials hope the certainty of a reservation system will bring in new users and revenue. Campsites and houseboat sites had been first-come, first-served, and the only access to them is by boat.

The park's visitor centers will have computer kiosks to assist with walk-in, same-day reservations. All other reservations will need to be made in advance on-line at www.recreation.gov or by phone at 1-877-444-6777.

Fees will range from $10 for houseboat sites to $24 for large campsites.
